Kirk Cousins is about to hit it big in free agency and should have several teams interested in his services. The free agent-to-be quarterback welcomes all suitors, but specifically says he would “love it” if Denver is interested in him.
Cousins spoke with News 9’s Mike Klis in Denver and expressed his interest in the Broncos.

The Broncos have a talented defense and are very weak at the quarterback position. They have three options in Trevor Siemian, Brock Osweiler and Paxton Lynch, all of whom are below average. Bringing in Cousins would be a massive upgrade that would put them right into playoff contention. And we already know at least one of their players wants Cousins.
It will be up to John Elway to decide whether to try signing Cousins or to draft a QB instead. The Broncos hold the No. 5 overall pick in the draft.
